Apology On Crashes14 February 2018 (03:34) by Gamemaster Knighter
We want everyone to know, we are very much aware of the current crash issues. This is something that disapoints our team greatly, and not the norm for us. Ninja is working very hard to attempt to solve the issue, however, due to the nature of it being a crash of the server, only so much can be solved at one time, thus resulting in attempts to fix the issue, and hope it properly solved it moving forward. Dont think we are standing idle-by while this happens. We are doing everything we can until the issue is 100% solved. Unfortunatly, due to the nature of bad eggs, we cannot compensate people everytime a crash happens (most dont or barely get affected, as characters frequently save), so we will be using 3 of the Experience Booster + Energy Booster for the 3 hours after a crash occurs (or in the morning if one happens throughout the evening). Again we apologize and it's very frustrating to us when it occurs and is at our immediate attention.

Coins + Legacy!09 February 2018 (23:24) by Gamemaster Knighter
COINS RESSURECTED FROM THE DEAD
One crucial thing for Archlight is that through any Era, we ensure that every player knows every dollar they spend in support of our project will never be lost. We are proud that every single dollar donated for since our first launch in August 2015 is still in the account of the player who has purchased those points. And years from now it will remain as so. Additionally promotion tokens will be compensated based on points donated. What this means is even for the players who did not donate 80 euro donations but multiple smaller donations, you will receive promotion tokens for the thresholds you have donated for.
All cosmetic tokens have been added to their respective accounts already.
To prevent flooding of the market we, like in every era, give back points over a spread time. This helps even the playing field for all the new players on Day 1 especially. We have had the opportunity to test this 3 different ways now, and have decided on what we think is the best way for the new incoming player base and the returning one. Essentially, for every 1000 coins you get redeemed, you will receive a promotion token that can be redeemed in game for bonus rewards.
The time table that coins will be "resurrected" is shown down below!
1 Hour Before Launch - 2000 Coins Unlocked + 2 Promotion Tokens!
48 Hours(2 Day) After Launch - 3000 Coins Unlocked + 3 Promotion Tokens!
5 Days After Launch - 4000 Coins Unlocked + 4 Promotion Tokens!
8 Days After Launch - 4000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!
11 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!
14 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!
17 Days After Launch - 6000 Coins Unlocked + 6 Promotion Tokens!
20 Days After Launch - 6000 Coins Unlocked + 6 Promotion Tokens!
All points after this will be unlocked at an accelerated 150-300% Rate every 4 days.
Legacy Crystals From Last Era's Progress
To Reward players for their progress last Era, players have earned Legacy Crystals based on the table found below. These crystals are forever saved onto your account and will be obtained any new Era/Expansion on Launch Day. Below displays how you can calculate how many Crystals you earned. Additionally, we will be increasing the scaling of this table in the future (even more crystals for high power or awakening level).
Awakening 1-100 = 1 Crystal/Level
Awakening 101-200 = 2 Crystals/Level
Awakening 201-300 = 4 Crystals/Level
Awakening 301-400 = 7 Crystals/Level
Awakening 401+ = 10 Crystals/Level
Power 2000-2500 = 10 Crystals/100 Power
Power 2500-3000 = 20 Crystals/100 Power
Power 3000-3500 = 30 Crystals/100 Power
Power 3500-4000 = 50 Crystals/100 Power
Power 4000+ = 75 Crystals/100 Power
Legacy Crystals Unlocked
All Legacy Crystals will be unlocked on March 2nd.

Teaser #1106 February 2018 (00:22) by Gamemaster Knighter
Teaser #11 - Protectors of Archlight Event
This New Event joining Archlight on Launch is a "hordes" event in which waves of Otherworlds Creatures will attack from 4 different angles. All you the players will work together to protect the center of the event, if creatures enter the center protection zone, they will disappear and remove 1 life from the life total (20). Waves will progress more difficult and more creatures as the event goes on. This map is just a prototype map and is being re-skinned before Launch.
